The Hurdle rates are used to dynamically manage multiple rates. By editing one rate (Hurdle rate), you can stop rates for certain days or increase the minimum prices of multiple related rates.


The creation of a hurdle rates is similar to any other rate in Clock PMS+. Only standard rates can be used as hurdle rates. 


Create the standard rate(s) and set the price. For easier management, we recommend you to avoid publishing hurdle rates in the WRS, channel managers, etc., as hurdle rate  are used to control the behavior of your rates in the already mentioned WRS, channel managers, etc. You can create as many hurdle rates as you need.



Use of hurdle rates

On the Create/Edit screen of a rate that will be used for the direct sales:

  • Choose the desired hurdle rate in the "Hurdle rate" field.
  • Choose the "Hurdle Rate Mode":
    • STOP. The rate will automatically be stopped, if the price of this rate for the day is LOWER than the price in the Hurdle rate for the day.
    • Minimum price. The rate will automatically be updated to match the price of the Hurdle rate, if the price of the rate for the day is LOWER than the price in the Hurdle rate for the day.



Examples:
  • If the price for Aug 1st is EUR 100 in the rate and EUR 80 in the Hurdle rate, the price in the rate will be 100 EUR.
  • If the price for Aug 1st is EUR 75 in the rate and EUR 80 in the Hurdle rate, the price in the rate will become EUR  80.
